Florida Gator Football

Chad Jackson is threatening Alvarez's mark
There is no ball in his Tallahassee home to commemorate the season, and as time passes it fades deeper into the minds of everyone who was part of it.

Different direction
Some could argue the difference between this year and last is barely perceptible. The results and records certainly are similar.

Bowl picture pending
It will be another week before the picture clears regarding which bowls the Florida and Florida State football teams likely are headed to, but there already are some early indications.

50 Things You Should Know About The UF-FSU Series
Next Saturday afternoon, the Florida Gators and Florida State Seminoles meet for the 50th time in football. The series is half as old as Texas-Oklahoma. It may not have the long-standing tradition of Ohio State-Michigan. It hasn't produced future presidents like Harvard-Yale.

UF, FSU and what went wrong
The first Gator Walk, on Labor Day Weekend, portrayed all the promise of the coming season.

Pride is at stake for FSU, Florida
West Palm Beach lawyers Robert Merkel and Jim Barry have braced themselves for this week as long as they can remember.

Florida Gator Basketball

Gators say they proved a point
In a few months, Florida might look back on this week as the springboard to its season. Two nights. Two ranked teams. Two wins.
